Ford says fifth Indy outing in the works

Harrison Ford is preparing to make another 'Indiana Jones' film.

The 67-year-old actor has revealed he is in talks to play the whip-cracking archaeologist in a fifth film, just one year after he made his comeback in 'Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull'.

Harrison told France's Le Figaro newspaper: "The story for the new 'Indiana Jones' is in the process of taking form. Steven Spielberg, George Lucas and myself are agreed on what the fifth adventure will concern, and George is actively at work.

"If the script is good, I'll be very happy to put the costume on again."

Harrison first played the iconic character in 1981 blockbuster 'Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark'

He reprised the role in 1984 prequel 'Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom' and 1989 sequel 'Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade' before reprising the part in 2008 after a break of nearly 20 years.

Shia LaBeouf – who played Indiana's son Mutt in the last film – previously hinted another sequel was in the works.

He said: "Steven's just said that he's cracked the story!"

'Indiana Jones' remains one of the highest-grossing film franchises of all time.
